DJ Khaled Set To Score First #1 Album With ‘Major Key’


(AllHipHop News) It’s official, DJ Khaled is an A-list entertainer.

The man that has become the king of Snapchat is now set to become the ruler of the Billboard 200.

Khaled’s latest LP Major Key is on pace to earn over 90,000 equivalent album units, his first chart topper.

That total is likely enough to unseat Drake’s Views from the top spot on the album chart. The OVO leader is set to score around 80,000 SPS units.

Major Key is also predicted to sell around 60,000 copies in traditional album sales, giving the Miami-based DJ his highest opening week since 2007’s We The Best (79,000 copies).

If Khaled does hit #1 on the Billboard 200 it will continue Apple Music’s domination of the tally.

Major Key was released as an Apple Music exclusive.

Views was also only streamed on Apple Music for a limited time. Drake’s 4th studio album held onto the top spot for 12 nonconsecutive weeks.

Yet another Apple Music exclusive will surely be in contention for #1 next week if the reports that Frank Ocean’s long-delayed Boys Don’t Cry really arrives on Friday.

The project is said to be streaming solely on the platform for two weeks.
